Tossed By the Sea
Today I went to the beach with a friend. As cloudy and cool as it was, colors popped and captured the eye everywhere. Rosa Rugosa is no longer blooming but rose hips are ripe and abundant.
Some of the colors were in my personal noncollectable range. This lobster shell glowed in blue, green and rust but would have smelled like a seafood restaurant dumpster in no time, so a picture had to do.
Goldenrod is blooming in the dunes.
A most astonishing blue and red. This really tempted me, I almost broke my rule (nothing stinky), in the end common sense prevailed. The white thing there isn't crab but shark cartilage. There was LOTS of that around. I wonder what is killing the sharks.
In the end the things that found their way home with me were pieces of driftwood.
